Best car and place to get this is with the Bugatti Veyron at Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe Old Mulsanne Circuit I got up to 270mph before braking the achievement will unlock once you finish then quit out of the race.
Yellows OUFCThis can be achieved in free play.

XonatronAnd you can rent the car.

XonatronHeads up that you have to finish the race before you quit.

BobalobTDA box of fish you have to hit 402 kph and higher.

a box of fishSo I've done this twice now with the exact same conditions you've provided yet nothing has popped!

I finished the race in 1st, hit 260+ mph on the back straight, what could I be doing wrong?

a box of fish@BobalodTD, just realized I put km/h instead of MPH. Still, hasn't popped for me! Guess I'll keep trying. :(

RDWinters1944The most important thing (I suggest update guide description) is that it MUST be done without using any rewinds! ;)

iiTs HawkJust got this straight away. Did 265 down the back straight, came in first & didn't use rewind. Popped right away after the race ended and i hit quit.

MasTRE007Weird, I'm not able to hit anywhere close to 250 MPH. I'm renting the Veyron, not sure what's up.
Posted by MasTRE007 on 03 Oct 17 at 01:01
baxtrsame thing as Master007, rented and max I have hit is 230 mph

BobalobTDMasTRE007 and baxter5469 I've just done 2 test runs with the Veyron one was the full circuit where I could only get up to 232mph the other was on the Old Mulsanne Circuit where I got 272mph. What you need to do is on the track selection screen press X and that will take you to where you can choose Full circuit which is the modern track with the chicanes down the straight. The Bugatti circuit which is the permanent race track or the Old Mulsanne Circuit which is the one on the far right and that does not have any chicanes on that long straight.

MasTRE007BobalobTD that's what it was! Thanks for the tip.

TheOdd101RDWinters1944 You can use rewind, I used it because I slammed into the barriers at the end of the straight without realising I had sim damage on and got the achievement first try.

adamrulzAlso, if you have the Hoonigan car pack, take that twin turbo mustang and go to tune... just move the slider on top (final drive) to the left until you se the top speed over 250MPH in the top box on the left.

Lasher67I tried it with rewinds on, used them and it did not pop. Reran the race again with rewinds off, all other conditions the same...and it popped!
Posted by Lasher67 on 08 Oct 17 at 01:59
PenthesDitto. Did not pop when I used rewinds, saw these comments and tried again without rewinding (rewind were still turned on, just never used it) and it worked.

linspmoIT's GLITCHED. It says "100% completed", but the notification didnt happened
Posted by linspmo on 16 Oct 17 at 14:17
DrSchmocksame for me... when i activated the tracker it say that i have completed 100% but when i go to achievement's it sayed locked with 0% unlocking.... Every Game has some glitched achievements...finally i hate all those games.

whitet3260I've tried to get this achievement several times: Old Mulsanne, rented Veyron, rewinds off, completed the race, over 250 mph every time, first place - it never registers. It's not possible that Turn 10 does not know about this problem but they just don't seem to care.
Posted by whitet3260 on 05 Nov 17 at 02:00
XOli360Worked for me once I turned off the rewind. Cheers !
Posted by XOli360 on 04 Jan 18 at 16:27
markdelucaBest car to this is Koenigsegg Regera. The Veyron is no longer the fastest car in 0-250 mph.
Posted by markdeluca on 04 Jan 18 at 22:25
Kahuna28Renting the Koenigsegg and doing 1 lap with no other drivers on the 'Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe Old Mulsanne Circuit' worked for me, I managed to reach 254 MPH and the achievement popped as soon as I had finished the race.
Posted by Kahuna28 on 17 Jan 18 at 17:18
V3ntilatorI used the solution above me, and it worked on first try.
I crashed a few times and rewind were enabled. Still popped.
I used Koeniggs Regera and got 251 or 252 at best..Enough for it to work.
Posted by V3ntilator on 21 May 18 at 20:29
neosaladI tried a few times..
It finally unlocked when I DIDN'T USE Rewind, I did crash though

JeffchobThe easiest option is to select 'Test Drive' rather than 'Start Race' on Le Mans - Old Muslanne Circuit. I used the Koenigsegg Regera, drove sensibly (no rewinds) until the straight, then nailed it until it tops out around 251mph. Once you've seen the speedo hit 250+, pause the game and end the test drive. Once you are back to the race menu, the achievement will pop.

MrWhite2UJust play the game and it’ll come naturally.
Posted by MrWhite2U on 05 Sep 20 at 20:55
darkrealmslordThis one seems to be lagging or bugged because I unlocked it sun/11/10/20 and it's showing in my list of unlocked and on here as unlocked but in the achievement list for the game on my Xbox it's showing as 85% complete!

XSniperNinjaXI forget the last time I played but I can't find under Bugatti Veyron under car not sure if I won in Race or unlocked during race mode then sold it.Idid buy in Aution go to free play pick card it was not there or won't let me use it.Is there any other fast cars I can pick ?
Posted by XSniperNinjaX on 15 Oct 20 at 08:57
alladaskill17@XSniperNinjaX did you check to enable 'Car Division' to 'any'?
Posted by alladaskill17 on 17 Oct 20 at 05:11
Tequilla2BladesFree play. Le mans old, in the hoonigan mustang. Test drive and brought 5 and 6th gear up. I hit 265 and ended the test, started the race and the cheive pipes up. No other cars.

THOR4205I tried a handful of methods. Here is the only one that worked for me (and it worked first try):
Free Play
Setup / Race Setup
Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe
Laps: 1
Max Drivatars: 0
Game Type: Circuit Race
Track Scenario: Day
Car Division: Any
Car: Hoonigan / 1965 Hoonigan (Ford Hoonicorn Mustang)

***Important note: If you use Assists (Setup / Assists), make sure to change "Braking" from "Assisted" to anything other than "Assisted". That way, you don't slow down at 245 and start to turn. You just hit 250+ and smack into the barrier (Cosmetic Damage recommended).

Then just finish the lap/race.

Phil MaBoBaI have been driving over 250mph several times now with different cars on different tracks in free play but the achievement didnt unlock. Dont know what im doing wrong. Any ideas?
Posted by Phil MaBoBa on 10 Feb at 09:50
smoli83Maka has a video for this:

He uses a rental Bugatti Chiron, which works fine (I just popped it). One thing to notice is that using rewind during the race seems to invalidate it?
Posted by smoli83 on 20 Feb at 01:47
PureRhapsodyYeah, +1 on not rewinding - it invalidates the run.

Get the target speed and finish the lap, it doesn’t matter how messy it is, just don’t use rewind.
Posted by PureRhapsody on 07 Jun at 22:49
PK84xDI used rewind and achievement unlocks fine to me.
